vetoed—Yoda

Adminned at 13 Dec 2008 07:48:16 UTC

Reduce Rodlen’s PP by 1 for each FOR vote made on this proposal.

against

I just played the game well.  No need to punish me for it.

against I’m surprised that you would even think of doing this after we were the two with the highest honor in the last dynasty.

But this IS the game.

:: FOR ::

What are the rest of us to do, spend the next seven days counting down to Rodlen’s victory? A lot of people want Jason Smith dead and it is not punishment for us to further that aim. ;)

Rodlen had the same amount of time that everyone else had, with the exception of eljefe only because he joined late.  Just because Rodlen took more advantage of that time does not mean that we should take away all his hard work.

By the way, we still have the secret rule.  Something is going to happen, we just don’t know what yet.  It could have a massive impact on the game or it could do almost nothing at all; we just don’t know.

Yeah, but not everyone was motivated to play during the dynasty. And I am not planning on going idle because you tell to do so.

against lol Art are ya ticked that he tried to blow ya up agew plot seeds back?

Yoda:

I’m tempted to veto this on the grounds that it’s just plain not fair to Rodlen.  He worked hard for each one of those PP.

against .  This comes across as a petty attack on someone who has simply played better.  If I were Narrator, I would veto this.

Bucky:

(the path to beating Rodlen is applying lots of plot seeds and relationship costs.)

arthexis:

@Bucky: Technically. However, Yoda can also lower PP if I make a plot seed. See, from the start this dynasty is just basically Yoda hand picking who wins next. The secret rule merely reinforces this.

You guys know that every dynasty where I have played I always made proposals whenever I had a slot available, and tried to make interesting and fun mechanics. However, I also hoped I could get a chance for winning… With the mechanics currently in place, there is simply no point in trying.

Bucky:

Then propose a change to Rule 2.7.

against If Rodlen wins, he wins. I’d personally like a metadynasty…

Yoda:

Arthexis: Actually, I can only raise your PP, not lower it.  And I only reserved the right not to give a PP so that we would not get a bunch of one or two word entries.

Yoda:

12-13-2008 15:47:38 UTC

Oh, and veto
